yo, in Canandaigua NY, a place very close to Rochester, a black trans woman was shot three times in the chest by her parole officer and denied medical help for an hour and a half, and though we think she's going to pull through, she's fighting for her life in the hospital and they're refusing to allow her mother to visit her, and I'm gonna be real with you we live in a pretty fucking bleak world

and I'm leaving Today, I'm out of Rochester This Evening and she's in Strong hospital right now, completely alone, going in for her third emergency surgery and I fucking hate this shit because there's like Really nothing I can do about it this time

she needs an attorney because that's the only person they're legally required to allow in to visit her gofundme.com/f/legal-help-for-

it's weird how they're not letting her speak to her mother to tell her what happened,
they're only able to report on the cop statements that are like "this is just what happens when you don't get on your knees and beg for your life fast enough", weird how convenient that is for the cops who shot her

from the FTP roc page: "Strong allowed one [5 minute] phone call with loved ones. However, they demanded the call remain on speaker. Further, they restricted Chanel and her loved ones to speak about the brutality that she faced, and made it clear that if the incident was discussed, they would immediately disconnect the line."

it's cool that everyone involved is complicit, from the cops who shot her, to the media reporting on it, to the literal fucking doctors and nurses at the hospital providing her care, it's almost as if the incredible violence is baked into every square foot of the world we live in, I wonder how it got like that

also cool that they're misgendering her like literally within the same sentence, that's a pretty rare one, to start out a sentence with the correct pronouns and then switch out at the last minute, making it both confusing AND transphobic

@wgahnagl I'm so sorry. I know that doesn't solve anything, but it's unbelievable how inhumane some people are, particularly cops.

@wgahnagl what the fuck?!

@wgahnagl isn't canandaigua where they dragged the protestors who were arrested at the daniel prude protests to

(not that canandaigua is unusual among upstate ny suburbs in its degree of bigotry, it just seems like a suspicious coincidence)
